Lighted Duck Decoy, Legal on opener?

7 posts in this topic

Has anyone seen these lighted duck decoys? Is it a joke or will it really work? It was in the one of the adds the other week. It has 40 led lights on it that fash 4 times a second. This is supposed to give off flash like a spinning wing decoy. I was just curious if this would fall under the motorized ban during the first week of the duck season or is this a way around that rule? confused.gif The DNR better quick make an addendum to the rule book before these catch on!

Yea who knows about the rule. What I do know is those things look absolutely retarded, and I would laugh my a$$ off if I ever saw someone using one.

Okay, here's the way I understand it: you can use the decoys with red blinkers on odd days and the green blinkers on even days. You cannot mix red and green blinkers in the same set as it would tend to confuse the birds. And you must never use red and green mixed near the end of the season as it might confuse Christmas shoppers. Whatever you do you must NOT display blinking yellows as it is an obvious caution-warning signal. It IS permissable to use a white light decoy to find your way out of the swamp.

Now you know.

Are you serious? I haven't seen these things yet. You would think it would scare the bejesus out of those early morning ducks.

I saw one at the game fair didnt look all that appealing to me. You never know they might have some scientific study that they conducted that says it should work. All i know is that i dont think i will ever own one. They look rediculous to me.

I bet a robo duck didnt look too appealilng when it was first brought out either, so who knows, maybe it would work.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.
